October Is......

Grab This Button

October is Down syndrome awareness month and once again I will be trying to post something everyday for the 31 days of October. I hope I can do it! We have been having some pretty crazy times around my house the last few months and I haven't been keeping up with posting much.
 One of the things that happened a couple of months ago was my oldest son going away to west Texas to work on a horse ranch. The second week he was there he was in an accident with a horse and had most of his thumb cut off! So he had to come on back home with us to heal.
Sweet little Ruby did not want to have anything to do with her big brother at first.She was wondering what that big white bandage was on his thumb.She hit the bandage twice ,which put my son to hollering of course.I explained to Ruby that her bubba had an owie. I signed and said," Owie," and pointed at the big bandage.Ruby made a sad pouty face and said and signed,"Owie!" Thank goodness that helped and she didn't try and hit it anymore! I wish I had taken video's of my son trying to get Ruby to come near him and give him hugs.She would make the cutest squinty-eyed smile and back away from him.She wasn't having any of that, thank you.

So there's my first post for this month. I'm looking forward to getting back into blogging regularly and hopefully sharing some good info on Down syndrome.

Here's my thumbless guy and Ruby isn't scared of him anymore :-)
